An event like no other, the 2nd Annual Paddle For The Cure (PFTC) of the Palm Beaches is by far the most unique and adventurous way to raise local awareness for breast cancer. Hosted by yours truly, Paddle Boarding Palm Beach is teaming up with The American Cancer Society to Paddle With A Purpose (PWAP) and gain support for breast cancer research. Unlike traditional fundraising events, Paddle Boarding Palm Beach is combing the popular craze of paddle boarding with the power of breast cancer awareness. Located in the heart of West Palm Beach, Paddle Boarding Palm Beach’s premier water front location provides the perfect outlet for such an event. The PFTC coincides with The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month campaign that runs throughout the month of October and is scheduled to take place on Saturday, October 19th 2013.
